How it works

You should participate in all categories relevant to your agency. You don't have to sign up to the four optional categories, but you will be asked to give a reason for opting out.

Choose one supplier in each category your agency's signed up to - it's good practice to use fewer suppliers where possible.

Features and benefits

  • The contract is easy to join, use, and manage
  • The range of suppliers ensures your business requirements are catered for, no matter which sector you belong to or where in New Zealand you’re located
  • Access to a range of quality suppliers with competitive pricing, including specialist suppliers, manufacturers and regionally represented suppliers
  • AoG negotiated pricing across a wide range of products that government agencies purchase

Savings and costs


Agencies who participate in the Office Supplies contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost.

Using this contract saves participating agencies an average of 7% for large agencies, and up to 30% for smaller agencies.

Some suppliers offer a consolidation benefit if an agency buys from them in multiple categories.

Participating agencies have access to any special price a supplier offers to the public that's lower than the AoG price.


Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple, effective and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.

The administration fee for Office Supplies is 1.5% (excluding GST and incidental expenses).

Suppliers collect the administration fee and pass it on to MBIE - agencies don't need to make any payments to MBIE.

A service fee will be charged where agencies’ purchasing behaviour causes suppliers a higher cost to serve - eg placing small orders or by placing non-electronic orders.
